98 chevy cavalier overheating and running towards the hot ?
I have a 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier. When I first got it their was no heat and it was running towards the end of the heating line. Replaced the thermostat(checked the old one afterwards found out it really was junk) and flushed out the hoses, this got the heat working. We flushed the radiator and filled it with coolant. It has an electric fan, the fan is indeed working. Today the car started to go past the white line and towards the red so I pulled it over. When it gets to that temp, everything gets hot EXCEPT the radiator. My heater is working good now, so we dont believe it is the heater core, but are wondering if anyone has any suggestions of what could be going on with it. We didnt see any leaks at the water pump or pulley, but heard that its possible that the bearings could have just worn out and need replacing. My father has been saying that the hoses felt soft and as if no water had been flowing thru.
